How do I get .exe games to run on my Dell Laptop.?

I can download it but when I click the file it asks me what program I want to run it with. Then it will give me a list of things like Internet Explorer, Maxthon Browser, Microsft Paint, Microsoft Word. There are other ones too but I m not sure what to open it with or how to get it to open directly to the game.
